The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) comprises of seven countries, namely Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. SAARC came into existence in December 1985. SAARC is a classic international organization, as long as it works on the basis of unanimity and consensus . Areas of cooperation are numerous and it is this cooperation that is reflected in the concerns of the subcontinents. The areas can be classified into four realms. The classification is as follows
a. Infrastructures (transport, energy, tourism)
b. Education and social matters (health and population activities, women, youth and children, human resource development)
c. Science (science, technology and meteorology, information and communications technology, biotechnology, property rights) and
d. Environment (agriculture and rural development, environment and forestry).
This brief overview on SAARC deals first with its purposes and thereafter lays emphasis on the actual achievements of the organization.
